Build Your Course Fast Resources

This is an open course shell with a variety of resources around course design, Canvas, Zoom, Panopto, and accessibility. We’ll be continuously adding content to this shell as we procure useful materials.

Simple Course Template

This is a basic course template that you can use to plug in content appropriate for your course and students. These templates are optional, but we hope they will help ease the anxiety of starting from a blank Canvas shell for those instructors who may never have used Canvas, or have never taught an online course.

Update April 3, 2020: We updated the template with a new Welcome page. If you have already brought the templates into your course, you can add the new Welcome page via Canvas commons (see below for instructions).
